The way I use it...
Students enjoy this project! This is a 1-2 week project. As I scaffold and model the information to my students, I have students write in the due dates on the checklist. I make this an at-school project and have students keep their brochure in a designated location. Be sure to save the PowerPoint as a PDF and then print with it scaled to 100% so that the folding lines are lined up.
Lastly, there are additional resources such as the checklist, postcards, key word list, or graphic organizers that are available to meet student needs. The homepage and speech are optional activities that you can use with your students. The great thing about it being editable is that if it doesn't match up to your unit, you can change it!
